Nintendo has unveiled a release date for the next Zelda game, Breath of the Wild.
It’s been a long wait for the latest Zelda, which was first shown in 2014 and announced for a 2015 release, but it’s nearly over now.
Nintendo really drew the anticipation out, leaving The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to the final slot of the day, and building up the hype by cutting to messages from Nintendo of Europe and America, with appearances from Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma, before cutting to the excellent new trailer above.
With such an enormous launch title lined up, the new console’s coming out of the gate swinging. Check out our full Switch January event coverage for all the details.
If this new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild footage doesn’t leave you breathless and jonesing for a cigarette, do check your pulse.
